Big day for UCLA on the WWL

Not only did the UCLA basketball recruiting class move up to No. 1 ahead of Kentucky in the 2012 class rankings – with Ben Howland and John Calipari sharing the spotlight on the front page of ESPN.com – but then there was a Steven Manfro sighting.

And a big one.

ESPN.com named Manfro the No. 1 spring “breakthrough” player and adorns the top spot on the college football page at the moment as well. Here’s the story: Manfro Going Big

    Many of us were not surprised we could get this class, but what will Howland do with it, and is this model of recruiting sustainable? Naturally, if Howland goes on to win 7 of the 10 next national championships, the question will be – is that sustainable for the following decades?

    So ESPN finally puts down the LeBron, SEC, and all things Boston lovefest to write about a West Coast team.

    Our program should focus on getting the top kids in California each year. UCLA should be THE west coast destination for college hoops. 8 of the top 100 California prospects on the ESPN 100 list came from California and they all went somewhere else. That being said, if only 8 kids came from our state, then we must continue to pursue national recruits. We can’t ignore all of the talent we have here in CA.

    We only recruit academically eligible recruits from California.

    And we got Powell last year. No argument.
